i been at city hall, 850 bryant, pictures all the time and you know you see me and you talk to me, which is okay, and we continue to be ignored. >> president chiu: thank you next speaker. >> my name's teresa cooper and you want you all to know that i respect all of your opinions, and the things that you're working on. and i personally have my own opinions. prideful, it's disappointing, body language. i'm a body worker. i'm a master body worker. it's disappointing. you know, you're not hiding -- youvsr,l know, when you don't , body language speaks powerfully.
and i'm an expert at that, and an energy worker. i guess that's the one thing that i could share is that, you know, set aside the prideful ways,? iga because the public'sg it. i fought for ross mirkarimi. i know that his neighbor is harassing him. what are you going to do about that. maybe i should call the police and have them go over to protect ross' family. and again, prideful body language, this is my time to speak. i'm going to have a recall on our da. i didn't vote for him. i can do that as9@nkt well. i have rights. people for that. so anybody picking on my sheriff, just know that i'm going to get real committed because i'm disappointed, what i see in city hall. i can't speak about nudity. wow. i grew up in it, in chico. we just had the naked people on
the opposite side. we got to see them but no one was harmed. i'm 3ü9qjez the prideful ways of our government and i'm not going to name names but just know body language reveals everything. >> president chiu: thank you. next5%(> members of the board of supervisors, ray hartz, director of san francisco open government and i would like to acknowledge and concur with the comments made by mr. chaffee. the lies cost more than the money. i'll be glad to tell you that their last meeting the first one in five months they found city librarianújpp8 luis herrera 9-1 violation withholding public records under the sunshine ordinance and i intend to file a complaint with ethics commission faish case. what records did he withhold.
he withheld records that showed the relationship financially between the friends of the library and the san francisco public library. constantly coming out at library commission meetings and other public functions, telling people that they gave 8.8 million to the branch library improvement program, and then having to disclose that 5.17 million of fact is wrong. to go to the government obligation bond oversight -- advisory committee, and present to them that 8.8 million was given is misrepresentation. it's one thing to simply ignore your responsibilities to monitor a group. it is another thing to go out and make public statements to the public, that are false, and you know are false, because you have absolutely nothing to support them. now, this is going to be referred to this board of supervisors, and i don't thinkyñ it's going to get here until next year and to be very honest
i'm glad it's not(' getting here until next year because the integrity of this current board of supervisors leaves a lot to be desired. it's amazing how hard the exercise their first amendment rights under the constitution of the united states. shame on you. >> president chiu: thank you. >> good evening, honorable mr. president and the board of supervisors. my name is -- long time cab driver. i'm here to speak about proposition k, which was established by the people of san francisco 30 plus years ago drivers, to earn one, not to buy one. since sf mta took over the taxi commission and they sold 292 medallions and they gave medallion holders $250,000 and those are the people who are
collecting 2-3,000 a month for their rental income for 30 plus year. and then they gave 50 medallions to the single operator -- to people with not on the medallion waiting list for no cost. onojpb top of that, they gave 1o 250 medallions these directed to the cab companies. all those medallions should have gone to the medallion waiting list to earn, not to buy one. today, sf mta board and the list to giving 200 medallions to the first 200 qualified drivers on the -- and the rest, like people me, go to"ja÷ how, working continuously for 24 years, serving the public for 24 years, on the medallion waiting list a medallion for 3,000 oruvjt(s -
and this isr( very unfair. i'm here to ask your help. give the thanksgiving to drivers like me and their family. like me and their family. i sent you myc8 please read that, either ask the matter and issue a -- increase 200 to 500 medallions or consider my proposal. and thank you very much. happy thanksgiving. >> president chiu: thanks. next speaker. >>&÷ "íñ he that made the ids sl he not see, he who made the ear shall he not hear. is the best -- gty.org is the best preacher and you can download 3,000 of his sermons
broadcaster. family radio is the best radio station because family radio kear is the only radio station that reads good books and most importantly the only radio station that reads the word of god. now here's a good book. tv, mr. president -6r7b8g9sdz if you put it on the screen sf gov will pick it up. that up a few years ago and he gave thumbs up to that one. and, you know, you can tune in on -- let me see. i think it's noon. yeah, i think it's noon. and i'm also asking people toéz google john decamp, alex jones, the franklin coverup. you know, it's really incredible what's going on in our nation.
it really is. john decamp is a senator, 16 year senator from nebraska. and i just finished a book by kathy o'brien, and mark philips rescued kathy o'brien she was a victim of the ultramind control and used as a sex slave with many politicians of great prom nans appear in bohemian --&xj! e that made the eyes shall he not see. not hear. >> i'm tired. john denon-a from san francisco.
are we losing our sense ever privacy. throughout history almost all of humanity had chosen to retain a degree of dignity and pride starting with fig leaves and animal skins. the -- today some would have us turn into just a herd of naked animals instead of individuals with a sense of privacy. on the nude beach, fine -- >> president chiu: excuse me, sir. >> nudist colony is okay. >> president chiu: as i mentioned before, we have a rule in the board chamber that -- >> okay. i can't read this because you passed it already? >> president chiu: because we've passed it already. >> okay. see you next time. >> president chiu: thank you >> good afternoon, supervisors. could i get the st. elmo overhead please. >> president chiu: if you put
>> on sunday, i was reading strauss plaza and walked over to little italy at st. francis assisiájpms church where i -- r examination, marriage and the marijuana card. two yearsjp@p ago, i was an applicant for the state bar of my application number mlpda0 failed, as did both parties on the application. st. francis of assisi church still remains an undeveloped property under the name of

i was working at the time unfortunately. the upcoming opening of a restaurant on the marina, i'd like to file a protest here and now and hopefully be presented at the next december 4 meeting, to have the residents in that area express their concern about the restaurant that's being opened on theup9ñ marina green. this is a place where children play soccer every weekend. there's -- games, there's events coming every weekend. at times it's impossible to park in my of my own house and i live the boulevard. to tear down a facility to put alcohol in the presence of into consideration as well as the amount of traffic, the congestion, the -- not even talking about the amp yawns. iñd%( ;?ñ would like to come bae on december 4 to have itfçje5fn reviewed. >> president chiu: thank you. next
>> my name is art scampa. i'm a resident of the marina for the last 30 years. i'm here today because there are no public comments on the meeting december 4. you will be casting an important vote to either keep the marina n&j:+ one of the most pristine urban waterfront parks in the nation, or commercialize it by converting the old navy degaussing station to a restaurant serving dhol, being able to stay open from 7 am to+ç 11 pm seven days a week. the marina green is used by hundreds of little kids from all over the city to play soccer. making it efacto the largest playground in the city. it has always been the city's policy not to allow alcohol in a public playground. these kids have not shelter from the weather, or restroom
facilities. a much more sensitive use to the environment and community would be to use the degaussing station as a clubhouse for the kids so they have shelter, restroom facilities, and a place to store their equipment. if rec and park doesn't want to pay for it, even though they just received about $200 million, i would be willing to fund it myself as a contribution to the city. i'm looking for six votes here. who want to put the environment and the welfare of the children ahead of the dollars of a restaurant lease. do the right thing. and vote against this restaurant lease on december 4. and with all due respect, supervisor farrell, i ask you again, with the association, with the hospitality industry, and$á( mz your own father pitchg this restaurant, do the decent and honorable thing and recuse yourself from this vote.
thank you. >> president chiu: i want to remind the public there's a rule in the board chamber that we not address individual members in your public comment. if you could address all your comments to the full board. thank you. >> hi. i'm nichole preato i'm a resident on marina boulevard. thank you. hi. i recently found out -- we all recently found out about the proposal to agree to a lease -- a restaurant lease on the marina green. and we're quick to action. we presented yesterday, and we're here finding out we can do this again tonight to speak to all of you. first of all, late notice on this very important decision, it's greens are open space, our beautifulhj[ waterfront, placina restaurant, you know, comments
have been made, serving alcohol, long hours, additional lighting, lack of parking facilities. it should be taken into greater consideration. i understand that park and rec is looking to raise funds, especially to develop the west side or western yacht harbor. i'm sure there are other alternatives to be able to do fundraising for that purpose without destroying our beautiful city sky -- or waterfront. i7j÷ think it's rather just astonishing that when we speak to our neighbors, that no one knows of this. although rec and park said that they did a lot of prepublicity, i mean these are neighbors. these are concerned individuals that are affected directly affected. are at the 11th
board, when it comes to vote december 4, that youkírá@ alloa continuance, allow our affected -- to give us more time. >> president chiu: thank you very much. thank you. next speaker. >> hello. my name is -- campo, i'm also living at marina boulevard. this is regarding changing degaussing station at marina green to the fish and chip restaurant and to me just like putting a hot dog stand at half storm in yosemite. it destroyed the nature. i've been walking by this place, by degaus station, for 21 years. like a gal pus
island. all the bears, migratory bears, sitting on a roof. and it's such a magnificent waterfront. and changing this waterfront to the commercial restaurant is not right. besides, hundreds of kids, they play soccer on saturday, and they need parking. most of the time, the mother, they cannot find the parking, and they circle and circle. and they draw -- they just park in our driveway. so that cause a lot of trouble parking, plus the serving alcohol next to the playground, and marina green is the largest playground in the city, especially on thursday, friday, saturday. and having alcohol serve next to these kids is not fair. let's -- keep marina green like
a park for everybody to enjoy, and let's notjp8a commercializet like new york central park. thankskm%( sms for voting no to degaussing -- to change degaussing station to fish and chips restaurant. >> president chiu: thank you. next speaker. >> good evening. i'm just going to repeat what i said yesterday. while it can beçjpdm argued thae degaussing station is of interest and should be preserved, of greater importance is the effect of a restaurant at that location. one of the reasons given for converting the building to a restaurant is lack of other adjacent food options. just off the top of my head, i can list three in fort mason, two on buchanan, another at the end of marina green, three on crissy field, and as always, safeway's deli so surely that
argument is voided. besides can people no longer walk in that wonderful area, any direction and breathe in the stomachs. a7%( m restaurant in that elecn would change ambience of marina green altogether. it would invite more cars, more garbage and the odor of food being cooked and then disposed of. the addition of a seating area will block the view for many. our forefathers knew what they were doing when after the panama pacific -- all the buildings were demolished with the exception of the palace of fine arts and the area eventually became a non-commercial part of the city, free to be enjoyed and relished by residents and visitors alike. let's keep it that way. thank you. >> president chiu: next speaker. >> good evening, supervisors. my name is -- i'm missing my
regular monthly community meeting at the tenderloin police station that we have every month but there's a couple of issues that are important to me. going down and playing cat and mouse games with the board of clerk's office about the sunshine laws pamphlet that's supposed to be in there, because in every other language there is the leaflets. but in english they seem to have a hard time so now they're saying that they're going to redo it but then i said you should take the other ones out of there and redo the whole thing but no i'm playing a cat and mouse thing but i will be back tomorrow to see if they make copies of that because that should be in the office of the board of clerks. also, i wanted to speak on hiv. as you know, the african-american and latino community is the highest, community is the highest, fastest number of new cases of-6 and harm reduction, i'm a
product of harm reduction. i believe in harm reduction. it's very good because it made me a better man. i'm a very proud gay black male. so i had a lot of issues around stuff like that. so but i think we need to really, really focus on hep c because it's good to know about how to be safe,; j,v while havig rgetworld, whatever a person des they want to be in. but we have to start pushing hep c because it's coming. it's going to be an epidemic. i believe it because we're talking about everything else in harm reduction except hep c and we have to really, really talk about it because i see it coming in the city because we're just focusing on hiv and prevention of hiv. we need to focus on hep c also. thank you. >> president chiu: thanks. next speaker.
to the supervisors of the great city of san francisco and also good afternoon, good evening to the clerk and her aide and the sheriffs. my name is charlie pappas cofounder and currently chairman of divity treat patient wellness co-op in the tenderloin, today. times, the worst of times. it was great for our san francisco giants, it was terrible for san francisco medical cannabis patients,x#( or providers, licensed and permitted dispensaries like
myself. our employees and their families and our landlords. tunnel, however. last month, the city attorney in oakland filed a lawsuit against theap 6!ñ federal government top forfeitures of licensed permitted businesses. last week in berkeley unanimously the berkeley city council decided to follow this lawsuit, and eventually join it. i would like our city attorney in san francisco to consider this, but i do not seem to be on his radar so i am here before you to ask you to prod him, if possible. and i think it may notkr%( k÷ ba solution, but it's atø:é least - an important symbolic gesture. i want to wish you all happy thanksgiving, and just a quote comes to mind in this longejag2
afternoon, by bob dylan, even the president of the united states sometimes -- naked. thanks again for your attention, consideration, and this opportunity. >> president chiu: thankd>&j(? . >> got to8jp% go, gobble gobble gobble go, gobble gobble go, gobble gobble gobble go, hey. i want to see this here right here. the transgenders have just left outside the city -- today. thank you for the support. although we're finding out in this city a lot of people civic and civil rights are being cut back on. we hope you, the board of supervisors, will be like the
board of supervisors who brought forth the medical marijuana that now 25 states enjoy. supervisors to create codes and sros will be coming here december 4. you know sros, you talk about domestic violence, you talk about homophobia, racism. it's inside now. people want to get up from the sheets and run to the street, whether they naked or not. you know the naked truth is that we really want you guys to do what chris daly did. he's the only one that built apartments on the corner of bank burger king. the united states two weeks ago we voted for the president. two weeks today. they emo he that the -- know the united states politicians are working three days a week and no times for the citizens. we don't want you to reflect that. i want to remember you board of
supervisors. when ross was the supervisor here you only making 33,000. we voted that youz/( -w would me over 115 so that you could do the work -- to san francisco county. so we want you to do what we want you to do for the people. we know world aids day is coming up december 1 at the castro you know, it'sjlj?2 timeñbpj t thanksgiving, think about what you have did for the people in this city. just think about that when you -- that naked bird. thank you. >> president chiu: thanks. next speaker. >> i'm peterú(û warfield execue director of the users library association. two things, library decision-making and the open hours hearings that recently concluded, you may have heard very poor publicity. there's a great deal to be said
about that. but i could certainly say that building in which a meeting was about to go on, or had gone on, or was goingeijpson, without hg the slightest idea from any kind of signage that there was a meeting happening. and there was nothing very -- there was nothing evident from the signs that were posted that these meetings were extraordinary meetings, only once every five years and that these would help determine what the library's hours would be, open hours, for five years. the library often claims to provide public service, particularly for poor people, and unfortunately it's autocratic method of doing decisions excludes very often those folks and others so that there are, in some cases,l disastrously bad effects. i've previously talked about the
impossibly difficult copy system that the library recently adopted. i got a call from somebody who's concerned about library issues from time to time, who is poor, and who wanted to print out a single page résume, and had, instead of paying 10 cents, had to pay a dollar to get that cop) card. there is no change provided and there's no provision for just making one copy or less than a dollar's worth. the refreshment to the card has to be a dollar, in dollar increments with no change provided. so a 10 cent copy becomes a dollar. when you're poor, that's a huge deal. and in the past, you used to be able to add coins and also when there were typewriters, do it with your own paper. thank you. >> my name is anna -- aka --4 >ñ jones. i was unable to
